Windows 7: AMD, Inc driver update for AMD SMBus

AMD, Inc driver update for AMD SMBus

I received this priority update on Windows Update. Size is 30Kb
There's no explanation besides "This driver was provided by Advanced Micro Devices, Inc for support of AMD SMBus".

What should I do with it? I really don't want to "update" anything that seems to be working correctly, since there's non-zero chance that it may not work after update. What's this SMBus anyway?

If everything is working fine, just hide the update by right-clicking the generic driver update. It will be stored in the 'Restore hidden updates' if you want to refer back to it.
